The newest addition to Martin’s re-invented 17 Series guitars, the DSS-17 Black Smoke is an easy-playing, great sounding slope-shouldered dreadnought. The top is solid Sitka Spruce and the back is a Mahogany, generating a sound range similar to Martin’s classic D-18. The rosewood fingerboard and bridge together with the white Ivoroid pickguard contrast beautifully with the black satin finish on the top of the guitar. Features a 1.75” bone nut width, antique white binding and Golden Age Relic Nickel tuners with cream buttons. Comes with a generously padded Martin gig bag.
